2. Integrity of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition can be checked up, connecting an ohmmeter to the positive plug of a primary winding and to the high-voltage plug.

The prevention

Keep in mind that in the ignition coil is available on two sets of windings.

3. Check up that there is no connection between the high-voltage plug and the case of the coil of ignition.
